Not the opportunity I hoped it would be
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 1, 2017
I researched Schneider for nearly 4 months before I was called upon to interview. I was so excited about the position. I truly wanted to be apart of this company.Unfortunately after training and all the ridiculous metrics, I spent my lunch break in my car crying. I managed the freight for 24 accounts. Of the 24 accounts I had maybe half of those that would tender on a regular/ daily basis. I was constantly hounded to ask for more freight, even though all we did was fail and run late on the freight that we were already moving on. I was so disappointed and stressed out that I developed hyper tension and that was after working in my CSR/Account Mgr position for 5 months. I am very serious about my job and how its done.I have been working like most adults since I was 15 yrs old and I never miss work, but I found myself calling in on a weekly basis just to gain some peace of sanity. The worst work experience ever. It is constantly the CSR's fault , not the DBL or the driver. Its my fault if the load fails , if its late, if the paperwork is missing. If it rains that's my fault too.
In conclusion, this position is under paid, overly stressful and very demanding.
Increased stress level and its not a high paying job
